About Us

The Story

It all started with a web series and an email.

In January of 2012 Tim Challies posted a single infographic depicting the Order of Salvation. Josh Byers saw that graphic, was intrigued by the concept, and contacted Tim about it. Tim responded and soon after they got to work on the Periodic Table of the Bible.

Since then, we have gone on to collaborate on numerous graphics, timelines, biographies and even a book (which you can order right now!)

Our mission combines the different passions of a writer and an artist—a writer with a passion for writing what is true and beautiful and good, and an artist with a passion for displaying what is true and beautiful and good. 

Visual Theology is the product of our shared desire and our unique passions. It teaches the foundational disciplines of the Christian life and does so through both words and illustrations. We want you to read the truth, but we also want you to see the truth.

Our hope is that the resources we create will powerfully complement the words, and that the words will powerfully complement the graphics. We want the truth to blend seamlessly through two very different media. 

So come along. Join us as we describe—and display—the greatest of all truths.
